Default [Q] Upgrade firmware, wait and/or safestrap?

Hey everyone,


I'm well aware of the locked boot loader situation and everything and I'm just fed up with it all. I'm currently on MJ7 and am unrooted. I don't mind waiting, but I really need a custom rom. I've been looking into safestrap. Is that basically duel booting a computer for android phones? Just installing on a virtual ram slot and booting into that rather than stock? And can any rooted phone run safestrap and boot into a custom rom?


Also, if I do go with the safestrap option, would I be better of staying on MJ7 or upgrading? I have a feeling that if I did upgrade to NC2 or the newest one, that would limit my chances of gaining root if someone figures it out to around zero. What should I end up doing?


Thanks in advance.
